Convoys Wharf architects in the spotlight

Aedas, the architectural practice responsible for the Convoys Wharf designs, was in the spotlight last week after it took the top slot in Building Design magazine's World Architecture 100 list.

The list is based on nothing more sophisticated than size, however, and in an article in the Observer last week, the paper's architecture critic Rowan Moore questioned whether size and adaptability was any substitute for 'vision and flair'.

Worth a read for background information about the practice that is leading Hutchison Whampoa's team; the comments also offer some insight into how Aedas is regarded by the wider world.

  1. Wow, this sounds interesting! In building and construction, design is one of the crucial factors to consider. Knowing his taste, I'm sure Moore has looked into every detail of Aedas' work.
